Away from the stresses of hosting an event in a busy city, with the sky-high prices and awkward logistics, The Orangery offers an oasis of calm in the beautiful, rural Essex countryside.
Here you can showcase your work in a relaxed and elegant environment. Away from the crowds, yet still within easy commuting distance of London, Colchester, Cambridge, Chelmsford and Stansted Airport.
As well as inviting guests from around the region, you'll also find a diverse and enthusiastic audience among the residents of the surrounding villages.
With full height glass doors covering the entire south face of the building, The Orangery provides an environment flooded with light.
Perfect for any event where you would like to display products or exhibit creative work.
Inside, the main space features the west, central and east galleries, which can be used individually, or opened up to provide one large open space.
Ideal for people viewing an exhibition, or for hosting events requiring plenty of floor space such as catwalk shows or product demonstrations.
The open and flexible structure of The Orangery means that it can easily accommodate the best floor plan for your event.
The venue has hosted exhibitions for a diverse range of creative works; from contemporary British artists and craftsmen alongside great iconic artists.
As well as fashion designers, book publishers, and exhibitions of historic interest. The Life & Work of Humphry Repton ran for 3 months over the summer of 2018.
When it comes to planning your event, we want for you to be able to display your work in the best way possible.
A great feature of the venue is that it is enclosed by a one acre Walled Garden. This peaceful oasis surrounded by ancient trees, provides a wonderful spot for your guests to relax and mingle.
Or, for you to add something special to your event, by hosting it in the garden. Perhaps a fashion show around the box hedges, or a musical performance on the patio.
Even the unpredictability of the weather is not an issue, as the venues flexibility makes it quick and easily to switch to 'plan B', should rain threaten.
We are flexible, creative and always open to new ideas. We look forward to working with you to create an event you are proud of and which your guests will remember.
